COLLINS, Petra. Discharge.
(New York, NY): Capricious Publishing, 2014. First edition. Quarto. 112 pages. Collins highly anticipated images of self-discovery and femininity that explore the emotional, complex intersection of life online and off. Responding to the ubiquity of social media, Collins offers images of unflinching honesty, exploring the privacies and publicities of growing up as a woman at a moment when female bodies are ubiquitously hyper-mediated by Photoshop and social media. “I’m used to being told by society that I must regulate my body to fit the norm,” Collins writes in her introductory essay on censorship and social media. From there, the book deconstructs that norm through her intimate photographs of friends. A fine copy in card covers with dust jacket.
